Where are classes located? All creative nonfiction classes will take place in our new location, 2707 West Cary Street. We are at the corner of Cary and Mulberry, just one block east of the Boulevard. You can see a map on our Connect page. 

What to bring? Coffee and tea are provided. Please bring your own journal, pen and/or pencil.

Cancellation Policy:  If you need to cancel a class, please email to receive an equivalent credit towards a future class. Refunds will be made via check in the case of emergency. We are unable to refund or credit cancellations made within 24 hours of the start date of class. 

Missed Classes: If you need to miss a class for any reason, you are invited to email that week's writing to your teacher for feedback and comment. Unfortunately, missed classes cannot be made up by attending another class. 

Inclement Weather Policy: By and large we will follow the mandate of Richmond City School closings. An email update will confirm this on the mornings when school is cancelled. Due to scheduling constraints, a maximum of one make-up class will be scheduled the week following the end of the session or as the schedule allows.

...We all have grief in our minds (some fresh, some decades old), and Life in 10 Minutes has helped me lance some of those old wounds that are festering and getting in the way of letting me clearly see my own stories. It’s taught me how to get unstuck in my brain and on the page. I think of the Life in 10 Minutes class as the most valuable two hours of my week.
